OUR WORK

Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR):

With the high unmet need for contraceptive use among sexually active unmarried girls and women (48%) according the National Demographic Survey 2018, it has becomes crucial to increase information and services for integrated sexual and reproductive health and rights services for the achievement of the SDGs goal 3. Following the Nairobi Summit, Knit Together will work to accelerate action for the health, rights and wellbeing of women and girls including other gender identities to:

• Achieve Zero unmet need for family planning – increased annual allocation from $3 to $4 million annually from 2018 for procurement of modern contraceptive; provide free family planning information, counselling and services to all women in public health facilities.
• Implement age appropriate SRH information, counselling and services for adolescents and youth.

Promotion of Gender Equality:

According to the United Nations (UN), one in four women in Nigeria experiences sexual violence before they turn 18. Promotion of gender equality is heavily tied to development of any society, this awareness prime our efforts. Our work will accelerate action from both government and individual persons to completely eliminate the long held practice of gender-based violence as seen in the communities today. As an organisation, Knit Together Initiative (KTI) will support implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), goal 5, the Beijing Platform of Action, to achieve zero gender-based violence and harmful practices against women, girls and youth.
